Action film Treatment
Pitch and plan
My pitch and plan is an action film involving Parkour and zombies. This is a zombie infested world where people Parkour and fight for survival.Certain people try to train other people to survive. The location I have this set in is a deserted city. The reason why it is deserted is because of people have been getting killed off by the bloodthirsty zombies. People have set traps up for the zombies all around the city where they can get them trapped and possibly kill them. Most of remaining survivors have a den where they all live and is pretty safe until it gets breached and have to Parkour to their backup den which is quiet a distance from where they are now. A couple people die on the way to the new den and for some people it becomes an emotional roller coasters, some people feel like they don’t even want to travel anymore. The genre of my film Sci-fi, Action and adventure.
There are many characters in the film so lets start by naming them. One of the characters is called Christian. He is one of the main leaders in the group they are in. What he does is he tries to find more survivors/items and helps teach people Parkour and commands certain people what to do. Another person which is one of the main leaders is called Daniel. What he does is also helps people with Parkour and also goes out to find food/drinks for everyone. He also commands a small group of people. The last leader is called Jack. He also helps people with Parkour and sets up traps around the den and around the city. He also commands a group of people. Some of the main characters that are not leaders are called Aaron, Jessica, Sam, Meredith, David, Bonquisha, Nathaniel, Jake, Tawanda, George, Chloe, Ellie, Mathew, Courtney, Joseph, Shay and Kurt.
The purpose of making this film and making this genre is because I know a lot of people like zombies and a lot of people like action movies involving death and a lot of people like Parkour meaning I have a large target audience to cater to. I also made it for an entertainment purpose. If people are bored or need/want something to do they can watch the film and be entertained.
The target audience age is 14+ however I’ll have to set the film to 16+ as they will be swearing, violence and sexual scenes within the film. There is no specific gender for this film; it’s for people who enjoy violence, zombies, Parkour, adventure, action and sci-fi.
I would have this in cinemas distributed round the world for many people to see then after that I will have the film on DVD and Blue ray. Then it will get distributed on the Internet.
In the year 2017! The world was turned in to a zombie-infected world! People were no longer fighting for any kind of rights but are fighting for survival. The main characters are Christian, Daniel and Jack. They teach the other people how to survive in a sense of learning to Parkour, searching for new people and items to use, searching for food and water and also learning to create traps. A horde is alerted and follows a member of the group back to the den and start rushing it forcing the group to leave and make their way to a new den. People die on the way and an emotional roller coaster is created. Some members contemplate whether they want to carry on with the journey or just give up and die. On the way they create mini dens and mini traps. The new people need to learn quickly to survive because this is the closest to death they have ever been before. The friendship between all the characters get stronger and they become more of a team. The leaders come up with strategically ideas to try and get the safest way there. They come to a realisation that they need a distraction to get pasted all the zombies in the way. Christian takes the distraction as he says he is the most experienced one there. They soon manage to get to the den however there is no sighting of Christian.
